IPL

Oral contraception has no contraindications for IPL, so you can have the treatment performed while taking birth control medication. However, it is always best to tell your physician about any medications you are taking before you undergo a cosmetic treatment.

Oral contraception (birth control pills) has no contraindications for IPL, so you are just fine to do the treatments and take your medication.
